Emily and Thomas

For Emily, Less is More

Under the leadership of Dave Parsons, the Montgomery County Literary Arts Council has made Emily Dickinson one of its cornerstones.  Annually we celebrate her birthday by reading her poems and hearing Dickinson experts discuss her poems and he life.  Therefore, it seems fitting that we acknowledge Brenda Wineapple’s recent publication, White Heat: The Friendship of Emily Dickinson and Thomas Wentworth Higginson.  Among the first reviews is that of Joel Brouwer in the Houston Chronicle, Bill Christophersen in the Wall Street Journal and Marjorie Kehe in The Christian Science Monitor.
